Before moving to Android, I'm trying to get PulseAudio working on two WinXP

in the wiki, so that doesn't bode well for the future.

I installed everything and am trying to "pulseaudio -nC" or "pulseaudio -nF

My default.pa file only has:

load-module module-waveout sink_name=output
load-module module-null-sink

If there's a directory that I should create before running, I couldn't find
any documentation on it.  And if there is Windows-specific documentation I
couldn't find that either.

Sorry for the basic questions, but this one has me stumped.
